This comes from an article: First Reg A+, then NASDAQ Listing for ShiftPixy
By JD Alois
ShiftPixy Workers FastTemp staff provider ShiftPixy is hoping to soon trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbol PIXY but first, they are raising capital under Regulation A+. ShiftPixy has enlisted WR Hambrecht as sole underwriter on a “best effort” basis to raise up to $50 million with a minimum raise of $15 million.
ShiftPixy is a service provider that contracts with business clients in need of part-time staff primarily in the hospitality and restaurant industry. The company is currently operating in Southern California but intends on opening additional physical locations in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Orlando, Dallas, Las Vegas, Atlanta and Philly (in that order). ShiftPixy currently has over 150 clients and about 3,350 worksite employees.
Let me share why this is significant:
This is a great plan. Many people are just crowdfunding one time with no real vision of how to move forward after that. If all goes well with each step, going to the NASDAQ is the right idea. And you will be able to watch the company progress all along the way. I think there will be a stock exchange for crowdfunded projects in the future but until then, this is a solid plan. I hope it helps you think in longer terms instead of just getting funding that will last you, 6 months or so.

How to Make Your Business Greener Today
With climate change becoming a more and more pressing issue, we should all start to take serious steps towards reducing our carbon footprint and the negative effects we have on the planet. Most people think that recycling and reusing plastic bottles at home are sufficient steps towards an eco-friendly lifestyle, but what about the workplace?
We should all consider the waste and pollution we create by driving to work every day, and take active action to eliminating the bad habits we all share. Making your business greener is not an impossible task if only you are willing to make a few small, but effective changes.
Carpooling is a simple and pleasant solution for everyone who doesn’t want to let go of the comfort of driving to work, but still cares about the environment. Share your car with colleagues who live nearby and your daily commute to the office will become more pleasant and you will also enjoy quality time with co-workers.
We all know that recycling is a necessary thing to do at home, but how many of us do it at work too? Your business will instantly become greener if you get everyone involved in recycling plastic bottles, aluminum cans, paper and cardboard. All you need to do is install some recycling bins and contract a company to take care of your materials.
Don’t waste electricity
It sounds simple, but most people don’t consider saving energy by turning off the computers, lights and other devices when they leave the office. Make sure you check that no unnecessary lights are on and make the best out of the natural light available.
Most of us recycle plastic and paper, but very few go through the trouble of recycling used batteries. Batteries contain corrosive acids and heavy metals and are a great source of pollution for the air, water, and soil. If disposed of in an irresponsible manner, batteries can do a lot of long term damage, so check out the places where you can recycle them safely.
Try reusable mugs
Instead of paper or plastic cups, encourage everyone to bring a reusable mug at the office, so you can cut down on the paper or plastic waste your business produces. It’s a simple, easy to implement solution to a very serious problem, so why not try it today?
We should all do our small part every day to make sure that we don’t contribute to the constant damage that the Earth suffers. The good news is that the process of preventing pollution at work is not rocket science!
The task of reducing the damage we do on the planet and making sure we do everything we can to protect it is not as difficult as it seems. If we all do our small part and extend our good habits to the office, not only at home, we will certainly see changes.
